Destination Favorites for Family Vacations on a Budget

One of our family's favorite vacation spots is the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area in Tennessee.  We love staying in the cabins in Pigeon Forge and Sevierville.  There are many cabins available for rent.  This is a wonderful place to go if you enjoy relaxing and prefer not to stay in a hotel.  We have vacationed in that area four times in the past nine years.  Each time, we have rented a different cabin in either Pigeon Forge or Sevierville.

For family vacations on a budget, this area has several things to offer.  Whether you prefer to hike or drive, you will love the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  The park is FREE to visit.  This is a wonderful place for those of all ages.  If you do visit the park, you just might see a black bear.  We were excited to see bears on two of our visits.  If you have young children, another FREE activity is to picnic or just play at the local parks.  Our children are both under five and they are always happy to have some time to simply play.

We always stay in a cabin that has a full kitchen.  So, we enjoy a couple of meals at the cabin to help save on the cost of meals.  Plus, it is a great time to just enjoy each other as a family.  Many cabins are equipped with pool tables, hot tubs, and DVD players which also provide some relaxing entertainment without additional costs.  There are a few Redbox Movie Rental Kiosks for cheap dvd renting in Pigeon Forge.

Family vacations on a budget can be a reality, with a little online research and creative thinking.
